On january 2020 a former employee wrote for Indeed a review about Wabco, he said "could not recommend working here": President is totally disengaged in anything other than finance. President readily admits he is not the mentoring type. Program management is a disaster as is the product line. Since turnover is very high, someone really needs to reaaly screw up bad for years before anything is done about it. Quality is down. On time delivery is terrible. We hype things we have no plan produce .just to hype the stock.
Packer (Former Employee) says"This company is a joke to work for. You never do the job you were hired to do, they are constantly putting you in different departments. They never have any work to do, so most of the time you are standing around everyday doing nothing. Yeah it's nice every once in a while but every day when they say they have work and don't, it gets old. Cons: No work"

Asset Manager (Former Employee) says"Very good company but due to politics among management the quality, employee involvement, employees interest getting detoriated. This is because of the lunatic desions taken bt the top management."
Machine Operator/Assembler (Current Employee) says"They treat temps like dirt. Both supervisor and plant manager never show any kind of pride for the workers. You bust your butt and do a good job and you get no thanks for it. You only get scolded for things like a child. You have no room to grow here. The moral of the plant is messed up. Everyone on the production floor is sick of it. The Hilo Driver is allowed free reign and has made multiple women quit because he creates a hostile work environment. It's horrible."
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) says"I worked in logistics in 2010 and from reading the reviews it looks like not much has changed in 9 years. During the interview I was told it was a mon-fri job, after starting through the contract company I was told it was 7 days a week. i dont have a problem working 7 days a week or even working 10+ hours a day, but being a single father of two kids at the time made that very hard to do. The pay was well below average, I think it was $10 or $11 per hr at the time..I'm making well above 70k a year now in the same position with a different company so the work ethic was there, but management was not.. The women working the production lines were a joy to be around which was the only positive about the job. Cons: Pay scale, no management involvement."
WAREHOUSE ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) says"Management sucks, HR is ghetto they help who they want and tell personal business. Very unorganized they take from there employees to keep there customer Cons: None"
Machine Operator (Former Employee) says"I loved the hours and the people were amazing to work with. The work is extremely challenging and hard on the joints due to the heavy lifting. Other than that, it's a decent job."
Dispatcher (Former Employee) says"I did a couple of different positions here. The owner had just bought the company and I felt sexually harassed by him. The only reason I stayed for as long as I did was for my manager."
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) says"Typical day at work for a driver can start anywhere from 0800-1000, usually deliver parts for two hours and you get your ten minute break, deliver parts for another 2-3 and get your 30 min lunch, work 2-3 more and get a break and an hour or two later you go home. You end up learning your local area very well, you don't really learn much about the auto parts, but you do learn your way around town very well. Management can be quite unprofessional and there is a lot of nepotism in the company, so if you think of climbing up the ladder or an unproductive employee being suspended or fired think again, some of them are related or really good friends with management. Hardest part of the job is seeing everything going on and realizing you'll never get a raise or promoted no matter how hard you work. The most enjoyable part of the job is being alone on delivery routes. Cons: no advancement, no raises"
Parts Builder (Former Employee) says"assemble and test HPB units with a close friend of mine."
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) says"The employees have to much drama and the employers seem to love it!!!"
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) says"By far the worst job experience I have ever encountered. No support from management. Constant requirement to work longer hours (salaried) and never enough employees to do the work. Cons: Everything else"
Key Account Leader & Customer Product Manager (Former Employee) says"WABCO bought several companies in 2017 and only to structure for selling to ZF. Between then and now, they put all of the stress of obtaining incremental business, called out-performance, onto the sales & marketing teams. (sounds normal so far) Cons: Stress due to poor leader ship and huge lack of engineering resources"
Assembly Mechanic/Inspector technician (Former Employee) says"I hated that place with a passion. I wish I never work there but I did gain some experience and knowledge while I was there for 3 and half years. Could be worst Cons: They make you work overtime no days and if u late once they will write you up"
CNC Operator/Machinist (Former Employee) says"Produced parts for the train brake systems by operating a machining cell.Learned lean manufacturing from management that were always trying to reduce manpower. Cons: Management was unprofessional"
COGNOS DEVELOPER AND ADMINISTRATOR(MODULE LEAD) says"its very good company,all project of this company very good,and i was learn to much knowledgeable,for his experience, its very good company,he was so many,benefits like food,travel allowance,incentive,insurance,and so many things,"
Key Account Leader & Customer Product Manager (Former Employee) says"Maybe it is better now, but during my time at WABCO, there was a drastic engineering resource constraint."
Assembler/Production (Current Employee) says"The management does not communicate to each other.It's a problem of "The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing". Continuous problem of running out of parts to run because the person is charge of that department is not paying attention to what is being used. Our Human Resources department is no longer an open door. We now must make an appointment to be seen or heard. And ,of course, management across the board, including HR, feel that lying to us is the norm. Some lying is expected, but there is a limit. Cons: No possibility for any type of advancement"
machine (Former Employee) says"You have to work like a machine with in one hour you have to do 35 pieces. you cant live the machine empty. Cons: entry and exit at the rit time"
Teamleiter Konstruktion (Former Employee) says"Nicht empfehlenswert - Personalpolitik sehr streng"
